Thick layer of smog has been witnessed over the national capital since past one week. So much so that the daylight was missing throughout the day and the visibility remained on the lower end. Residents were severely affected with breathing and vision snags. In fact, medical as well as weather experts termed the city as a ‘Gas Chamber’.
Stubble burning in the neighboring states of Punjab and Haryana is the main contributor to the raising levels of pollution in Delhi-NCR. Apart from this, the smoke emitted by factories and vehicles and burning of fossil fuels also adds up to the pollution levels.
